Maria Aragon posted the video Wednesday of her rendition of “Born This Way.”
Gaga immediately caught wind of the performance, posting the link to the YouTube video to her more than eight million Twitter followers. “This is why I make music,” part of Gaga’s tweet read.
Maria’s YouTube channel includes other covers of songs, including takes on Bruno Mars and Kelly Clarkson.
Maria’s video was featured on Perez Hilton’s blog and she was even interviewed by Virgin Radio Toronto.
One of her dreams is to perform on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”
